    Datsyuk has given enough to us that he deserves to do what he can to be healthy. Whether that means sitting out wings games so he won't come back too much worse than he was after is fine. Hell be here for three years after this year. I trust hell do whats right, and honestly he's one of the best players and people to ever play the game. I'd support him through whatever.

    What's wrong with Pasha? (Mod warning post #57)

    Sorry, but if he's too hurt to play for the Wings and takes the ice for Russia, that's a DB thing to do. Based on Babcock's comments, he's clearly not even close to being healthy. I don't care who you are or what the pressure is or what you've done in the past. It's disrespectful to the Wings, their management and the fans. I would think the same of any player no matter what country or team they played for.

    It would suck, but I would do the same thing in his position. Olympics are a big deal. Hosting them is an even bigger deal. Representing your country as Captain is monumental, and it may very well be the last chance he gets at fighting for gold.

    This. I am just extremely happy he's signed for another 3 years. He could have just left us last year and went to Russia. Let him do his thing. We love Pasha too much to turn on him.

    The NHL reffing affecting the game

    Yeah, like say, oh, the puck going out of play and hitting the netting and going off the back of the goalie and tying the game in the last minute. But damn, why can't stuff like that ever happen to the Wings?!?! They clearly hate the Wings!

    You clearly did not listen to the interview. As was mentioned, the comment was directed towards a question regarding Jurco. It was discussed at length at the time the interview was given. We all know why Nyquist did not start the season in Detroit. It's old news. Move on to something else.

    @dchesnokov: Asked Ovi if he's intentionally trying to scare Team USA players ahead of Sochi to give RUS advantage: "They're already scared." #Sochi2014 *eyeroll*

    Well, having been there tonight, I have to say, I can't complain about an eleven goal game, except for the outcome. Wings stated like s***e, probably shouldn't have gotten a point. Glad they did tho. Vibe in the Verizon was that ovie was due. Sure enough. Bastard. Lots of wing chants. Good time! Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk

    Question adressed to Kenny was regarding the Nyquist, why it took 2-3 months to call him up? He responded; this us the men league, kids aren't the answer. I guess that we can agree that Nyquist should have started the season in Detroit...

    The NHL reffing affecting the game

    Sometimes its tough to watch, like the tripping call in OT this afternoon for example, but my general philosophy is: if you're playing the game in such a way that the refs are able to influence the outcome in the final minute, then you're not playing hard enough in the first 59. If the Wings took care of business in their own zone today, the Wings would have been up by two or three goals to close the game out. As it happened, we didn't, and the invitation to hand the game to the Capitals, or the refs was thus handed out.

    This was a VERY even hockey game. So it’s hard for me to fathom that Detroit committed 6 penalties and Washington, only 3. Makes zero sense. Not to blame the refs (defensively, we were pretty stinky) but why do the calls have to be so ******* scripted? As a fan, you know when they’re coming.

    I can't be mad at him if he plays. I loved when Yzerman did it in in 02 as a Canadian when he probably shouldn't have considering his knee problems. I'm not gonna sit here and be hypocrite about it, and I don't think some people realize how this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for Dats.

    Lash is fine as a #6. Not great, but fine. With just an 'okay' top 4 D addition we'd be so much better. Kronner-E DD-DEFENSEMAN WITH A BRAIN Smith-Lashoff That could work alright. Right now I'm so fed up with Q. Can't take him anymore.

    What was that. I'm not expecting us to dominate. But that was embarrassing. The only reason I'm not 100% giving up is because the Caps are actually a bad team with bad goaltending and bad defense. But what was that. Worst period ever. Everyone except Nyquist deserves to be benched the rest of the game. Most of all Quincey. I hate that guy. SIGH. And I was looking forward to this game? Wow.

    He's probably in Sochi already hanging out with Putin and Snowden.

    He won't make any trades. He believes getting Datsyuk, Franzen and Weiss back is enough. Well last time I checked none of those guys are defenseman and we need one badly. Holland's part of the problem.

    I don't understand how people really think Pasha would rather go to the Olympics in "non game shape" and a month + off instead of playing and going in "in game shape." Pavel Datsyuk would want to go into the Olympics at the top of his game and full steam, not go in after not playing a month plus. So no I don't buy the crap that he is faking an injury. I do believe he wants to make sure he is a 100% healthy before he plays so that he doesn't end up hurt again in a week and miss another month.

    Cory Emmerton waived

    A lot of dicks on this forum. Kid played his role and didn't ***** when he was yo-yo'ed back and forth with the minors. He might not be the most amazing player by any stretch of the imagination, but at least he shows up, shuts up and does his job. I'm more appreciative of what he's done for this team, as little as it may be, than I am of what Cleary and Sammy have done this season (which is even less). But, then again, he doesn't score 20 goals with 5 minutes of ice time, so he's a mediocre piece of garbage....who makes league minimum I might add, not 1.7M or 3M.

    Wings to inquire about Vanek?

    As far as the kids (Tatar, Nyquist, Jurco, Mantha, DeKe, Shehan, Ouellet, Sproul) are staying I don't mind.
